    this sounds like one of the wheels is broken/ worn out. This is a problem that will require taking the dryer apart are you prepared to do that?

ED 56 Dryer Scrapping sound like metal on metal when the drum spins


Most dryers are supported by a bearing at the rear and teflon pads at the front. Sounds like one of the pads is worn out leaving the drum to ride on the metal frame. The bearing can also make that sound if it breaking down. Most dryers have enough play that you can lift the drum and turn it. If the noise stops then the pads are bad. You can usually find them at most dryer wholesale or online appliance part stores.

Dryer sounds like metal rubbing, drum in a bind. The drum is turning, but making a sound, like metal to metal, especially when it starts up.


You have a bad drum bearing. When it heats up the sound goes away slightly. When the drum bearing goes bad it tilts the drum in the front and it is rubbing on the metal front. Check the seal in the front. You could use lub spray but that is only preventing the inedible-replacement. Good luck.

Dryer is making a metal on metal noise and drum hard to spin. looks like drum has shifted


Hello, from the sound of things it has defenately shifted. It could be one of a couple of problems, thefirst thing is the belt. Is it loose or slipped over on the drive dide of the pulley? The other problem could be a bearing or shaft has given way. Make sure that the power is turned off when checking these things. I hope this helps.

Dryer makes a very loud noise when turning - sounds like something is grinding. Happens on both directions of the spin. Could this be faulty or worn bearings? It is a condenser dryer, 4 yrs old


The drum support roller for your dryer (s) is worn out. In Rozzi's case is sounds like the rubber has come completely off and the drum is turning on the bare metal part of the wheel. In guest's case is sounds like one of the rollers has a chunk missing from the rubber that normally surrounds the metal wheel.

Unplug the dryer. Pull the top off the dryer. Typically a couple of screws in the back and then slide the whole top towards the front of the dryer. Lifting from the front edge open it up like a chest. Remove the drum and the belt. You should see two drum support rollers. Replace them both (and the belt while you are in there).
